"But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts."
I'm saved today!
I know it was because God, my father; treated me like a mother in so many ways!
From his care, I tried to leave;
Yet he came after me, with love, and would plead.
I pressed to be the boss, but he showed me that he'd paid the cost.
He sent Jesus, to purchase my life on a cross.
An empty tomb on the third day-that memory, I couldn't toss!
I went out into the world to play and to joust, but found out I was lost.
Most mothers want their child to excel!
They sacrifice for us to do well.
Yes, there are some mothers who do wish that you fail; but they're in the extreme.
Pray for them, and perhaps, they won't be so mean.
Some have gone through horrors that cost them their self-esteem.
Celebrate them as mothers-you can still beam!
Remember, Christ in you, working to love your mother, regardless of the past, is supreme!
Happy Mother's Day!!
Apply these scriptures to your Mother!
"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
"And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."
